Warwickshire Pride has renewed its promise to keep pride free for everyone.

Taking to social media, the pride, which is now in its seventh year, tweeted, that no tickets were required for entry to the event and that they didn’t believe that prides should be charging people to attend – as pride is supposed to be inclusive.

Some prides in the UK have been criticised for hiking prices beyond the reach of many in the LGBT+ community.

Warwickshire Pride announced, “No tickets are required for Warwickshire Pride. Our festival is totally FREE to attend. We don’t believe in charging people to attend Pride as it’s an inclusive event and having a fee automatically excludes some people. That’s not how we roll”.

The pride also announced that its main stage is to be co-hosted by Gogglebox star Sandra.

This year’s Warwickshire Pride is due to take place on the 17th of August 2019.
